D. Watkins' Salon 5: Five instructions for Starbucks' baristas on how to serve racist-free coffee

America can be an extremely tough place for black people. The history of public lynchings, racist political policies, police violence and out right discrimination is well documented, and the story continues as two young African American men were arrested for no other reason outside of being black and sitting in a Starbucks in Philadelphia. As a result, the coffee company is closing 8,000 of its stores for a half day of racial bias training. What do baristas need to learn? Today on the Salon 5, D. Watkins is giving tips on what he would add to Starbucks' anti-racist curriculum.
